Philly Phaithful
Better With Popcorn

If you didn't believe in G-sus, well, you sure do now

When Claude Giroux was first drafted by the Philadelphia Flyers, he had an awkward experience when the team's former general manager, Bobby Clarke, forgot his name.

It will probably be the last time that any one ever forgets his name again.

Flash forward a few years later and the burgeoning superstar is quickly becoming a household name amongst NHL fans.

Following Saturday night's showing in the team's shooutout victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs, Giroux clearly displayed why he is quickly turning into one of the best players in the NHL today.

In case you didn't have a chance to see it here it is:




Amazing, filthy, dirty, disguisting; call it what you will.

It's plays like this that make Philadelphia fans mouths water (insert joke here) when thinking about the chance to watch this guy play hockey every night.

Considering it was the only goal of the night, it was certainly worth the wait.

Only other players I've ever seen do this move is Datsyuk (3 times) and Getzlaf once. Giroux got me out of my seat, that was a sick goal. The kid's for real. Also, TCL Flyers people, I bought a Giroux jersey, that's how much I like him
